Kaunas Castle

Kaunas, Lithuania

The history of the temporary capital city of Lithuania, Kaunas, begins with the majestic castle of the town. When describing it in 1361, the city's name was mentioned along for the first time. The castle, built in the extraordinary beauty of the surrounding confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers, was then distinguished by its size and strength of the fortifications. It is believed that this castle, defended by the large and well-armed Lithuanian crew, blocked the way for the Crusader expansion to the depths of Lithuania and its capital city Vilnius.
